Best Things To Do in Dubai

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Dubai team

From playing golf to dune bashing, indoor skiing, kart racing or simply taking in a guided tour of the city's landmarks, Dubai offers you a wide range of options on how to spend you leisure time when not tanning on one of its sun kissed beaches.

Nothing seems to stop this remarkable emirate from offering a vast array of excitement and luxury. It is, after all, the home of three man-made island developments that are visible from space, the first of its kind indoor ski slope in the region, the tallest building in the world and the biggest shopping centre on earth. There are plenty of activities taking place, particularly during the milder winter months, when the only one preventing you from enjoying your stay could be you. Visit Dubai during the shopping festival and you are joined by more than 5 million visitors taking part in the festivities enjoying great bargains that are typically on offer. Enjoy a stroll down The Walk at JBR and take in the buzz, but bring your camera along because the glitzy auto show you will witness rivals any you can think of. If you fancy a more sedate outdoor venue, then consider popping over to the other side of the Marina at Marina Walk for a delightful meal at one of the many stylish venues by the pier.
